Lake Lawn Resort provides the opportunity to step back from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy the simpler pleasures in life.   

Sitting on two-miles of Delavan Lake’s shoreline, Lake Lawn is part of the Lake Geneva region, just 90 minutes from Chicago.

Lake Lawn Resort has been a tradition for hundreds of families throughout the years. It’s been part of Wisconsin leisure life since 1898. 

Once a stop for the big band greats like Benny Goodman and Count Basie, it’s nestled on over 250-acres of natural lakeside beauty.
